And so the Blight crossover goes on and on, this time entering another title, Trinity of Sin: Pandora. What does this issue have in store for us? Is it good?
Trinity of Sin: Pandora #6 (DC Comics)
The battle against Blight and his minions continues as the ragtag team of magicians, sinners, and a plant man continue to fight with all their might. Trouble is though, there are many civilians around in danger and even if there weren’t, do they even have a chance in hell to win this fight?
You are going to need a bigger weapon than that.
Like last issue, this is really just one big, long fight scene with the heroes trying their best to stop Blight. As such, this isn’t much to comment on in the story department. I mean, characterization is good and I do like the contrast of the personalities with how they are handling the fight (as in fighting the bad guy while determining whether to help people). It is a decently paced, the story flows well from page to page, and the ending is interesting. However, there is just not much to say here, other than Pandora feeling underutilized in the comic. With the Constantine and Phantom Stranger issues, it felt like they were the focus of the issue with what they did and how much they talked. Here, outside of some minor narration and saving Constantine at the very beginning, Pandora does not contribute much to the comic.
Man, that shadow dragon just loves the sound of his own voice, doesn’t he?
With the artwork, there are two separate artists working on it: Francis Portela and Staz Johnson (who only does three pages). To their credit, both artists’ styles aren’t vastly different from each and blend well enough. Unless you are looking for it, you might not even notice the fact there are two artists on the book. Both of them, though, do a decent enough job with displaying some impressive looking action and decently looking characters. There are even some memorable panels as well that help make the book as a whole a bit memorable.
- Solid looking action and decent writing.
- Artwork isn’t too bad here.
- Feels very much like a middle issue.
- Pandora herself is underutilize in her own book.
Is It Good?
Trinity of Sin: Pandora #6 is just another part of the Blight crossover. It’s not particularly great and feels very much like a middle issue of a crossover event. On the other hand, it’s not bad either and has good art to it. Only get it if you are determine to see this crossover to the very end.
